- The Ram 1500 Rev has been confirmed as the name of the company’s first electric pickup truck.
- The concept version of the truck unveiled at CES 2023 was originally called the Ram 1500 Revolution BEV.
- The Rev will go into production next year, and Ram says it will share more details this Sunday, February 12.
Ram has significantly shortened the official name of its first electric pickup, which is expected to start production next year. While the concept version was originally called the Ram 1500 Revolution BEV, the brand changed it to the Ram 1500 Rev.
Contrary to what we already know about the concept, today’s news is only notable because of the name. Fortunately, the world won’t have to wait too long to learn more details, as Ram says he plans to release more information this Sunday, February 12. Could this be a surprising addition to the slew of Super Bowl commercials? Stay tuned.
Rev is most likely short for Revolution, but it also sounds like the verb used to describe the revolution of an internal combustion engine. Perhaps it’s an ambiguity that pays homage to both traditional gas-powered Ram trucks of the past as well as the future potentially full of electron-powered pickups.
It is likely to be a few more months before the Ram 1500 Rev is officially revealed to the world. Its presence at this year’s Chicago Auto Show gave us the opportunity to see the concept version up close. Not only is it larger in person than in photos, but its open-air interior – with its kind of third-row seats – offers a tantalizing glimpse of potential design and technology features for the production version.
Sure, the concept’s all-glass roof, coach doors, and nonexistent B-pillar are probably pure fantasy, but we expect the real electric Ram to have more than a few innovative features. Now we just have to wait and see what they will be.
